@OP, I don't know what price is really the best. But I will say last week my entry price I told some friend was $190. Which it has hovered around now for about a week. I feel there is a chance it could go up again if we see an overall positive market, in combination with some good press and new plans. NY10 1 point 2 points 3 points 1 hour. It could be nice if you can DIY this dish pointing work yourself - point your dish to multiple satellites ie three (3) dish pointing to - Astro, Indovision & ST1. Oh wow, 400-500 channels oh! It would be nice if you can fix your Astro dish yourself after been blown by the strong wind as well! Tools needed: an adjustable spanner & a compass.

It was released on 26 February 1981.In 1980 Judas Priest garnered some airplay with ' and ' from their album. As a result, the band pursued a more radio friendly direction on Point of Entry.Following the conclusion of the British Steel World Tour, the band began work on their next project. By this time, they had sufficient funds to fly all their equipment to the huge, state-of-the-art Ibiza Studios in Spain.
This gave Point of Entry a louder, stronger, more 'live' sound than previous Judas Priest albums. Contents.Promotion Three singles were released from the album: ', ' and, all of which had accompanying music videos. The song 'Heading Out to the Highway' has been a staple in live shows since its release, 'Desert Plains' was regularly played throughout the 1980s and 'Hot Rockin ' is still performed. On the 2005 'Re-united' tour they also played 'Solar Angels' on rare occasions, while on the of 1981 (supporting Point of Entry), it had been the opening song of every show. On parts of that tour, 'Troubleshooter' was also performed.Cover 'Europe got an intriguing and colorful sort of futuristic metal wing over a horizon shot.designed by Roslav Szaybo, who had done all the band's CBS albums to date.' The North American cover differed from the rest of the world, this being repeated with the remaster.
The US artwork, featuring computer printer paper to simulate the line in the middle of the road and white cardboard boxes on the back, was designed by Columbia Record's John Berg. 'The sleeve was awful, scoffs the guitarist (Glenn Tipton), 'and we've got to blame management for that because they didn't shop around enough to get one that was suitable. The American cover was different, but that turned out to be even worse!' ' The artwork also saw the introduction of the 3D Judas Priest logo, which would be used up to Turbo.Reissues The album was remastered in 2001, with two bonus tracks added, a live version of ' and 'Thunder Road', a track from the sessions.In the booklet of the Remastered CD, the band states:Recorded on the island of with multiple distractions, glorious sunshine, and extremely low cost alcohol, this album was regarded with mixed feelings because it was different from what people expected. The album was nearly all spontaneously written and performed in Ibiza - it was an experiment in the sense that before this we had already written the majority of the songs before going into the studio.Critical reception Professional ratingsReview scoresSourceRatingIn 2005, Point of Entry was ranked number 352 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.
